What's New at Lifelong AIDS Alliance?
December 30, 2003
Destiny "Destino" Williams joins the Lifelong Case Management team as the new bilingual Spanish speaking case manager starting January 2004. Destiny joins us from having recently work at the 45th Street Clinic as a member of the front desk and pharmacy teams. Destiny has spent time in Guatemala and El Salvador interviewing families to document their family history. Destiny has great respect and passion for helping the Latino Community and our Seattle community in general.
We also would like to encourage the community to visit the new and remodeled Transgender Center at the Seneca building. Miss Rickey Snowden, the new Transgender Program Coordinator will welcome you with open arms and will be ready to answer any questions you may have.
Miss Rickey Snowden was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada and moved to Seattle in 1980 and came to terms with her identity 4 years ago while attending a transgender support group. Miss Rickey Snowden's goal as the Transgender Program Coordinator at Lifelong AIDS Alliance is to bring the transgender community together.
She said, "I like to be a role model for transgenders across all races and here at Lifelong, we are going to provide a safe place where every transgender will be welcome to speak openly about their sexuality, HIV/AIDS issues as well as how to prevent this disease."
The transgender program will held support groups 3 times a week. The regular hours are Monday thru Friday 9am to 1pm. There is an Open House today, December 30th from 7pm until 9pm at the Transgender Center. For more information, call Miss Rickey Snowden at 957-1742.
